    Color Management is a complex topic. I’ve tried to break down the theory and purpose of this esoteric process in the first parts of the video. Then we get into the practical knobs and buttons of it in After Effects. We get into color spaces, gamut, transfer functions, all the nerdy stuff you need to know to effectively manage and understand color in digital systems. If you’re new to this idea please do not skip the first parts.
